UPDATE: March, 16, 2020
At this time, we have decided to cancel all yoga & fitness classes until the end of March. Yoga Alliance has put out a recommendation that studios cancel in-person instruction until the need for social distancing is over. For the health of our instructors, clients, and community, we are adhering to that advice. We hoped it wouldn't come to this, and it hurts to have to close our doors when people could benefit from yoga now more than ever. We encourage you to practice yoga at home and to get outside as much as possible to keep you well in mind, body, and spirit. We will keep you updated on opportunities for online studio classes, and we will look forward to seeing you in the studio again as soon as possible.
With the growing concern about the spread of the novel coronavirus, we want you to be aware that we are taking care to provide a clean environment for you to practice, as we always have. It is a convenient time, however, to remind you of easy steps you can take to help yourself and others stay as healthy as possible both in and out of the yoga studio.
We ask that you, as a member of our yoga community, be mindful of the following both in and out of the studio:
- Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly (using soap and water for at least 20 seconds)
- Use hand sanitizer (at least 60% alcohol) in the absence of handwashing facilities
- Using a tissue when coughing or sneezing (and promptly disposing of it)
- Refrain from touching your face (a good mindfulness practice)
- Stay home if you are feeling particularly anxious or concerned about being at the studio, and stay home if you are at a higher risk of illness
- Stay home if you are ill
This last point is the most important. Please consider those around you and stay home if you're not feeling well. We will be here for you when you're feeling better.
Additionally, if you borrow a mat for practice, please be sure to use disinfectant wipes before and after each use. If you can, consider bringing a personal mat to the studio if you don't already.
